“Art in the Park 2008”

Art in the Park has been a Carroll County tradition for more than 25 years. This year’s events will be held, rain or shine, on Saturday, June 7 from 10 am – 5 pm on the grounds of Westminster City Hall. It is free to the public.

More than 75 artists will be participating in this juried art show with many of them also providing live demonstrations of their work. On display will be paintings, drawings, collage, photographs, fine prints, sculpture, and stained glass. Visitors will enjoy live demonstrations of wood carving, pottery wheel, screen painting, and cartoon illustration.

Entertainment will be provided by a dozen roaming musicians who will perform on dulcimer, banjo, flute, harp, accordion and voice to delight the crowds. A drum circle and a belly dance troupe will perform during the festivities. Actors from Theatre on the Hill’s upcoming production of Pump Boys and Dinettes will be there in costume to sing some of the musical numbers from that show. As always there will be free craft activities for kids to inspire artists of the future!

The event is located at the intersections of Locust, Longwell and Key Streets in downtown Westminster, just 2 blocks northeast of the intersection of Maryland Routes 32 and 27. Festival patrons are encouraged to park free in the parking garage adjacent to the park.

The event is sponsored by Target Stores, the Carroll County Times, Carroll County Recreation & Parks Department and the City of Westminster.
